That’s a 50 with nine zeroes behind. 50,000,000,000.
The App Store opened in July 2008 and hit the 100 million app downloads mark in two months. By April 2009 it hit its first billion mark. By Jan 2011 it hit the 10 billion mark.
If you’re the lucky one to download the 50,000,000,000th app, you could win a nice US$10,000 App Store Gift Card. If you happen to be the next 50 downloaders after the 50,000,000,000th, you can still win US$500 App Store Gift Card.
Alternatively, you can also enter this sweepstake without purchasing or downloading any app but fill up this form … but where’s the fun?
In order to win, you need to be 13 years of age or older at the time of entry…plus other rules here.
At post time, the counter is 700-million apps short of the magic number…keep a look out!
